This is one of my favorite boats of that size and era. They were all around good sailors and had reasonable accomodations for their size. They were simple boats, reasonably well constucted. Of course they are typically more than 30 years old and so may have any and all of the old boat issues. Particular concerns might include mast step and supporting structure, deck coring, keel bolts and the rudder and rudder post, plus the usual worn out or outdated sails, outboard, instruments, standing and running rigging, and deck hardware.
